Garrett & Kelli have a love story that’s made for 2018. They were matched on a dating site but didn’t message each other right away. One day while Kelli was at the gym, she almost literally ran into a guy while walking through the gym. She and the guy gave each other side-eye, and then continued on their way.

A few moments later Kelli’s phone buzzed with a message from the guy she had been matched with, asking if she was at the gym. At first, Kelli worried he was following her in real life. But then she quickly realized the guy she almost ran into was the same guy from the site. Turns out they frequented the same gym, and so Garrett came back over and they chatted. Conversations led to dates, which led to a relationship, which led to us meeting them in College Station for their fun engagement session.

It’s so fun to watch our Sweetheart couples’ personalities come out during the engagement sessions. One of the things we like to tell them to do is to whisper in each other’s ear. Some couples get super romantic and sweet, and then others try to make each other laugh. Garrett & Kelli were definitely the latter, whispering funny words into each other’s ears, trying to get the other one to crack up. They are definitely a couple who laughs together often, so it’s no surprise their engagement session was full of laughter...especially when we were all trying to get their two sweet puppies to look our way. The only thing not funny was how hot it was outside this evening. But a little heat was worth that pretty Texas sunset sky.

Luckily it won’t be hot for their late October wedding. Their beautiful Catholic ceremony and Gatsby-themed warehouse reception are going to be so fun. And with these two, we know we’re going to all have a fun and laughter-filled day!

Dear Garrett & Kelli,

It was so fun to meet your sweet Zeus and Zelda, and to just hang out with you again.  Thanks for braving the heat and the insects with us for this session. We had a blast and can't wait to see ya'll again in October! And it won't be summer so YAY!
